Today I fell across a pretty neat blog - Paper Imagery Designs. If you love Stampington, Character Construction, Tim Holtz, and altered art, this is the place to stop and stay for a bit. And, Lori is having a one year anniversary blog give-a-way. So if you want a chance to win some great Halloween sheets, as well as Tim Holtz' new Halloween stamps, head over to http://paperimagerydesigns.blogspot.com/ and leave her a comment.
Tomorrow I will try to post some of my favorite foreign blogs for inspiration.

Thank you Julie for allowing me to get this technique out to others. This is my first tutorial so I hope it's okay and understandable. Now, on to what you need to do....
Then, using your brayer, roll the liquid applique across the whole card stock and cover the entire surface. It will not come out perfect and you will have imperfections. I feel this just gives it more of a suede, vintage, or distressed kinda look.
This is the finished product. I hope the photo shows the texture of the card. It will look and feel like suede. It's really cool.
Below are some samples I made. I hope you like this technique, use it, and pass it on to others.
I call this my "friendship card". Paper used was the Hopsack Black & Fossil Square Card Overlay Kit from The Papercut (www.thepapercut.com). I love their papers, the different sizes they cut, and the colors.
Stamp flower image (G165 - KB's Silphium In A Jar from Endless Creations www.shopec.com). I colored the water and flowers with watercolor pencils, coated with a versamark pen, the heat embossed with clear embossing powder. It really makes the colors pop.
Wrap ribbon (from Michael's) around the black cardstock and adhere to front of card.
Stamp the phrase stamp (Flowers In Bloom, FS1119-D from Verses Rubber Stamps (www.versesrubberstamps.com). Use corner ticket punch (Stampin Up) and adhere to front of card - over ribbon.
